The Colts promoted wide receiver Chad Williams to the active roster on Tuesday, per a club announcement. Williams gives them another healthy wide receiver at a time when the group has been perilously thinned out.
This week, the Colts learned that Chester Rogers will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury. Even before that, T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell were both out of action in last Sunday’s loss to the Titans. Williams now joins Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson, and Ashton Dulin as the club’s only healthy wide receivers.
Williams, a former third-round pick of the Cardinals, caught 20 passes for 202 yards and one touchdown for Arizona in 2017 and 2018. This offseason, he found his way to the Colts practice squad after missing the Cardinals’ final cut.
